A very lucky man survived falling from a subway platform in front of an oncoming train Tuesday afternoon, Transit officials said.
The incident happened on the “F Train”, at the Delancey Street station just after 1:30PM.
The man avoided the wheels of the train because he landed in the space between the tracks. A transit spokesperson said the train operator saw the man fall and put on the emergency brakes but three cars still passed over the man.
The man then crawled onto the platform after the train had stopped. The man was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he is listed in fair condition.
